BIOGRAPHIES

Curtains for Architecture will not mean 'Curtains for Architecture.' Quite the opposite. An openness to curtains and their kin will help rejuvenate the art. It will help designers to move on to an architecture that is more resource efficient, more technologically sophisticated, and less stylistically dogmatic, and architecture more embracing of humanity and truly interested in the possibilities of dwelling.
